Due to diet, environmental pollution, stress, fatigue and lifestyle choices, toxins build up in our cells and tissues. According to AyurVeda, these toxins, called Ama, are the basis of most disease.
Panchakarma consists of a series of purification therapies designed to remove toxic Ama from our cells and tissues. In doing so, it supports the
body’s self-healing mechanisms and helps promote good health.
Panchakarma involves a series of carefully coordinated purification procedures, given in a specific sequence, to gently but effectively release and remove deep-seated toxins.
Profound and long-lasting regeneration is the result. Your mind and body become more balanced, which naturally creates the basis for increased efficiency, vitality and zest for life.
• Ayurvedic massages to soften up the cells and tissues, to help them expel accumulated toxins
• Heat treatments to open up the body channels and help move the toxic Ama into the circulatory system
• Nasal and intestinal cleansing treatments to fully expel toxins from the body, so they are not re-absorbed.
All the treatments can be integrated into longer therapy programmes. Most treatments are also available as single treatments. A ‘One Day Wonder’, which includes Abhyanga and Shirodhara, is a popular option. Please note that the descriptions of treatments and preparations from this page onwards are provided for interest, and in practice one would have a consultation with a Maharishi AyurVeda Practitioner in order to design the best programme for one’s individual needs
